Perhaps if you asked me what my favorite picture from our stay in New Orleans is, it may surprise you when I tell you this one. It is not the typical New Orleans photo. But, I love it because I feel it embodies all that New Orleans is about...it is colorful. layered. old. new. rich. in depth. stark elegance against decay. weathered. textured. And just a little off.

|It's no wonder I got a parking ticket the first time I went to New Orleans! As a matter of fact, I think this is exactly where Nikki and parked. Like we were taunting the meter maid.|

And this one makes me smile and be happy. That man, the one giving that look over the tops of the other people's heads, is the man I love. And I have come to know that look all too well. It says, "If you take another picture of me I will, quite possibly, lose control and do something I will be sorry for." But, he never does. And I never stop. I let up a bit for awhile. But never stop...
